Chestnut Shellac based Friction Polish quickly produces a high gloss finish ideal for polishing small items. It has a heavy concentration of shellac which gives a very high build; therefore it is not essential to apply a sealer before application, although a coat of Cellulose Sanding Sealer or Acrylic Sanding Sealer may be applied first if you prefer. Usually used on the lathe although it can be applied off the lathe.
Apply by either by holding a moistened pad against work revolving on the lathe or continued rubbing off the lathe
Compatibility - Can be used on bare wood or over any of the Chestnut Products’ Sanding Sealers. The final finish can be treated with Burnishing Cream for an even higher gloss. Waxes can also be applied over Friction Polish.
Apply a thin coat and keep the cloth moving. For an incredible finish try applying Friction Polish over a burnished coat of Melamine Lacquer then use Burnishing Cream on top.
Thinners - Methylated Spirits (Should not be needed)
